For the past few weeks, I've had a squeak coming from my cranks. I think it's just the left, but it might be both, not completely sure. They're Sugino cranks, I believe they came with my Peugeot Orient Express. When I changed the pedals a few weeks ago, I partially stripped the left pedal threading, but it was squeaking before that, which is why I replaced the 24 year old pedals. I applied pressure to the cranks themselves, pushing them both down, and I kept hearing a click. I'm already going to replace the cranks, I'm thinking of using these:
Would replacing the cranks help get rid of the creaking/squeaking noise?
